Yemen trip # 2

Four hours of nice sleep, I wake up with few big knocks on my room door,,, I freaked out and fell down the bed (I thought something has happened and we are needed to evacuate), Luckily that wasn’t the case, I answered the door and saw someone who gave me a ticket and told me that I need to get ready to go to Mukala... I was a bit pissed since I didn’t get lots of sleep and they didn’t inform about this earlier,,,, after few minutes I went down to the airport the city was empty and it was about six in the morning,,, Later after I reached the airport, and started my check in,, they told me that there is something wrong with my ticket and I needed to change my ticket!!! I was pissed off when they told me that,,, This is not the way the company is suppose to be running. After I changed my ticket, I checked in, few minutes later I am on the airplane going to Mukala.




An hour later I have reached Mukala where there was a driver waiting for me and then we went to Massila,,, which is about three hours drive through mountain terrain there were huge and steep, Some were like 60° where cars has a bit of hard time to get up...


When I have reached Massila and settled in the room that they gave me,,, I spent some time to look around and see if there were any person that I know so we can hang out… luckily my emeriti friend was there (IBY)... So we had some time to fool around and joke about every thing, We then managed to be friends with the people working there, where they invited us to their “PARTY” That night was hell of a fun… Other than that we were doing nothing, just surfing the net and shisha and Qat,,,


Few days of having fun both of us went to the rig and did some work, I have only spent three days on the rig and then back to Massila and spend nine days, and when I managed to contact my manager here in Yemen, I discovered that they have actually forgot that I was over there,,, Then they said that I need to go back and my services are no longer required...


Well I am happy about it getting some serious cash when all I did is sleep, eat & surfing the net...

The getting back, was a whole different story with its own mess ups and destiny’s way of saying that I need to suffer so I can enjoy that cash that I got,,, where hopefully I will take about it in the next topic...
